The winter blizzard sweeping through southern US states killed dozens of people and made millions of lives miserable.
In Texas, for example, people have been struggling for heat and water. State officials say the deep freeze that started Sunday crippled utilities’ power generation, causing rolling blackouts or continuous outages.
Below are a few viral pictures doing rounds on the internet.

Well, when you live in TX you don’t usually have to prepare for events like this. No water at my place so I scraped snow from my drive into tubs with my dust pan. 🤣🥶 #TexasWinterStorm2021 pic.twitter.com/nz7OcuUmNz
